Within driving distance are some of our favorite eateries. We lean towards farm-to- table so many are just that, from one of our local farms directly to your table.
“There are several good restaurants within short driving distance of Magnolia Place. Here are some of our favorites – Terri and Ted.”
Table for Two
“Table for Two ” is another way to make your experience special. John Poulos promises to make your dinner an especially romantic one if dinner for two is in order.
